For 10 years, Michigan has been a right-to-work state, meaning no one can be forced to pay dues or fees to a union in order to work. In November 2022, Democrats won a legislative majority in the state House and Senate, and their leadership says they are going to try to repeal Michigan’s right-to-work law.
This would take Michigan backwards. At least 140,000 Michigan workers have left their unions, and tens of thousands would be forced to pay hundreds of dollars annually to labor unions against their will. It would also harm Michigan’s economy, taking us off the list of where many large manufacturing companies want to locate their plants. It would stagnate job, income and population growth.
